Calcutta Wine Club in association with UB Wines hosted an exclusive evening of Wine Appreciation, marking the launch of its Four Seasons Wine in Kolkata on the 20th of March at The Park. Abhay Kewadkar, Chief Wine Maker and Business Head (USL Wines) who graced the occasion, participated in a freewheeling tête-à-tête with the members of the Club and other wine afficionados present at the event.
The wines tasted that evening were five varietals of Four Seasons Wine, two white, Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc and two red varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz along with Blush Zinfandel. In an interactive session, Abhay, after introducing each of the varietals, expounded the nuances of tasting wine and gave Clacutta Wine Club members an enlightening insight into the grape varieties, production techniques, harvesting and vinification techniques of the varietals. The wines were paired with light pass-around snacks that were served throughout the evening.
The Wine Appreciation session was followed by the launch of the Four Seasons Wine at Aqua, The Park, amidst much fanfare with the who’s who of Kolkata present at the event.
Mr. Subhasis Ganguli, President of Calcutta Wine Club said, “The evening was a delightful experience with a lot of knowledge sharing between like-minded people with a passion for wine. Mr. Kewadkar’s session was extremely insightful and we look forward to interacting with him in the future and have his gracious presence at our Wine Tasting sessions.”
